## Re: horizontal skewness calculation

If your data is horizontal and you don't want to transpose it just use the skewness function like so (I've added an extra row as your data shows a skewness of zero) otherwise you'll have to do a transposition.

data have;
infile datalines dlm=",";
input x1 x2 x3 x4;
datalines;
10,20,30,40
20,30,40,50
2,3,4,90
;
run;

data want;
set have;
skew=skewness(x1,x2,x3,x4);
run;
